Using the Axes Collection

Use the Axes method to return the Axes collection. The following example displays the number of axes on embedded chart one on worksheet one.

Use Axes(type, group), where type is the axis type and group is the axis group, to return a single Axis object. Type can be one of the following XlAxisType constants: xlCategory, xlSeries, or xlValue. Group can be one of the following XlAxisGroup constants: xlPrimary or xlSecondary. For more information, see the Axes method.

The following example sets the category axis title text on the chart sheet named "Chart1."

With Charts("chart1").Axes(xlCategory)
    .HasTitle = True
    .AxisTitle.Caption = "1994"
End With
